  • Ontario Testing New Cement in Concrete Paving
    more sustainable in the long term There are questions about the durability in Canada and we want to be able to observe their performance under Canadian service conditions Doug Hooton Professor of Civil Engineering University of Toronto The largest part about 90 per cent of the CO2 burden of concrete is in the Portland cement production so using Portland Limestone Cements allows them to reduce their CO2 per tonne of cement by about 10 per cent Gustavo Julio Betancourt Holcim Canada Inc When we are doing trials and we are going to introduce a new material and the end product is concrete then we have to satisfy different requirements in terms of durability and performance Wintertime performance it means structural performance and also how it ll deal in very harsh environments in terms of chloride penetration Hannah Schell Ministry of Transportation So we ll look at things like the strength the behaviour of the concrete and by putting it in a trial section on Highway 401 here we ll be able to look at how it performs under winter conditions under the application of de icing salt to basically assure ourselves that the performance is equivalent So for the driver they shouldn t see any difference at all For more information visit ontario ca transportation Related Links COMPASS Traffic Cameras Snow and Ice Control on Ontario s Highways Snow and Ice Control Service Commitment Road Construction Report Service Commitment Anti Icing Automated Spray Technology Local Construction News GTA West Corridor Planning and Environmental Assessment Study Niagara to GTA Transportation Strategy Detroit River International Crossing Project 417east About the Ministry Minister Bio About the Ministry Service Commitment Videos Ministry Offices Sustainability Accessibility for Ontarians Printable Forms FAQ s News Ontario Newsroom News Releases New Information House Statements Events Traveller Info Highway
